Vampires Suck
There’s a pattern emerging here: when a Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer ‘comedy’ has the word ‘movie’ in the title (‘Scary Movie’, ‘Date Movie’), that gives the pair licence to chuck in random references to just about anything that’s been popular in the past five years. But when the film has an actual name (‘Meet the Spartans’, the new ‘Vampires Suck’), audiences should expect a pretty straightforward pastiche of a single, currently hot title, in this case ‘Twilight’. A shame, because a few broader references (‘Dracula’, ‘Buffy’, ‘True Blood’) might have made this punishing one-note trawl through the eminently spoofable tween-vamp saga slightly more watchable. Audiences know what to expect from Friedberg and Seltzer by now – pratfalls, fart gags, gay jokes, blunt sexual innuendo, an almost uncanny absence of wit, style or intelligence – and ‘Vampires Suck’ follows the formula to the letter. But let’s try to focus on the positives: there’s a faintly amusing whinge-rock pisstake over the opening titles, and six of those 82 minutes are taken up by the closing credits.

Though it mocks what I think is the death of cinema and one of the worst pieces of art to ever poison the world. This will not derive from the fact that this film is dreadful and a complete waste of my time. Hopefully (but not likely) Jason Friedburg and Aaron Seltzer will clean up their act and make a good movie for once.

Am I to be the only one who admitted watching this? Cool! I've seen 2 TWILIGHTS and "enjoy" them in a "Is THIS what kids find fun nowdays!..I don't know!" What I DO know is that this, in 75min, provides more entertainment than the 240 min of the spoofed films. No, not recommending you part with your hard earned, but If you're looking for the third (3 for £10) rental film at Blockbusters in 3 or 4 months.....oh, and the (cant remember the name of the girl she's spoofing) main female character is SPOT ON! 4+/10
